April and May Medical Camps in Pune – 2017

Written by Aina on . Posted in India, News

Since our last blog entry in February, we have held two meaningful events happening in Pune that we would like to share with our readers.

As some of you might know since 2014 we have been delivering, in association with Pune Doctors Association, free health check-ups to different vulnerable groups as part of our Education for SustainabilityE4S project.

On this occasion we held our first health camp of the year on April 6th at the “Senadatta Balak Mandir Prathmik Vidya Mandir School” benefiting around 70 students aged between 2 and 12 years. The check-up included a general medical examination where factors such as height, weight, temperature, oxygen level, pulse, etc. were measured.

Also a dental, ear-nose-throat examination was done, and the overall development of the children was evaluated. In the end, a report for each children was compiled and given to the teachers and parents.

Our second health camp was organized just last Wednesday May 25th at the Maherwat” elderly home. From 5pm until 7pm, 32 individuals received a general examination that included things such as checking their blood pressure and sugar levels.

Nektarina Non Profit and Zest Youth Movement are the organizers of the health camps but they wouldn’t be possible without the involvement of Pune Doctors Association and its members. A big THANK YOU to all of them!
